trip to the embassy, president obama and first lady michelle obama boarded "air force one" to start the long, 16-hour flight to south africa, where they will attend the memorial service for nelson mandela that will be held tomorrow morning. as we speak, world leaders from every corner of the globe are on their way to south africa for that memorial service and for the funeral and other events that are going to take place there over the next few days. the american delegation to south africa includes not only president obama and the first lady, but also three former presidents, george w. bush will be there and president clinton and jimmy carter. this appears to be on the second time in u.s. history that that many presidents, four living presidents, will be together, somewhere outside the united states. the only other time that has ever happened in history was at the funeral of jordan's king hussein back in 1999, when the president was bill clinton and he was joined by three of his presidential predecessors. but four u.s. presidents all together, all at once, that will be part of the re
